About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in North Carolina with over 12 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, pregnancy, birth, and post- partum issues, and various trauma related issues. I also helped many people who have military backgrounds, both active duty and retired.

My therapy style is personable, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I know it takes courage to make the step toward talking to someone that you don't know, however it has been my experience it gets much easier after you do. It will be mu pleasure to work with you to reach your goals. I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Valerie is one of the most authentic and compassionate people I’ve ever met. She is an incredible listener, validating and supportive. She has a beautiful way of reflecting back to you exactly what you say and feel to help give clarity and promote healing and change through ownership of our actions and heart. She is a powerful guide and anyone would be lucky to work with her.
